Service Changes

Effective July 1, 2008 service and personnel changes to the Government Information/Maps Department will be implemented. These changes will increase work flow efficiencies and in doing so assist the General Library to address current budgetary challenges. The changes are in sync with organizational trends in U.S. academic libraries.

The Shields Library lower level Government Information reference services will move to the Shields Library second floor Humanities, Social Sciences & Government Information Services (HSSGIS) Reference Desk. The HSSGIS Desk will be the primary service area for social sciences related government information. During this summer, relevant reference collections will be transferred to the second floor.

Micro formats, periodicals, and other collections will remain on the lower level where service desk staff will focus on directional questions and use of these materials. All specialized reference questions will be referred to the appropriate librarian subject specialist.
